Prominent members of the healthcare and law enforcement communities, scientists, elected officials, educators and other community leaders discussed current local trends in mental health and substance abuse with a room full of concerned citizens and community partners. The fourth annual Drug Abuse Summit took place at Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience and was broken into three different panel discussions, each exploring a different topic. Topics included stigmas, the role of the media and next steps locally. The half-day discussion was free and open to the public, thanks to co-hosts GL Homes, Hanley Foundation, Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office and The Ryan Licht Sang Bipolar Foundation. Florida Power & Light Company was the presenting sponsor.
